The 180km X-Berg Challenge 2014 starts on Sunday 16 March 2014.

Pitting runners and cyclists against paraglider pilots the X-Berg Challenge in South Africa is a six-day race through the Drakensberg mountains.

Last year’s race was won by a mountain biker – so the flyers will hope to show who’s really fastest. The full event lasts six days, but there’s also a four-day mini-challenge.
